Birdeye

If you want to increase online review volume and ratings while saving loads of time, Birdeye will do that for you. Small or large business, Birdeye can support you. Birdeye does not include support for all 3rd party review platforms based on the policies of those platforms; however, Birdeye is willing to work with its clients and aggregate 3rd party data into their platform so that you can stay on top of your reputation and client needs without the need to spend time always heading to those 3rd party websites.

Zendesk Chat

Zendesk Chat is great for communication with potential and existing customers as opposed to having to speak with them. Some customers don't like talking on the phone and/or like the flexibility of doing other things while chatting in. It's not as appropriate for meetings with management/higher-ups since it's far too casual.

Pros

Birdeye

  • Their support is excellent. Always fast and efficient.
  • Implementation was easy and fast. You are assigned an implementation manager to get everything connected.
  • Birdeye is constantly innovating and creating new value through added features and functionality. They're much more than just online review curation.

Zendesk Chat

  • A lot of nice features that allow us to customize the experience that we want to give our customers in terms of branding, functionality, and handling
  • Zopim does a great job with providing business process capabilities and routing features that help with managing our workflow, workforce management, and business processes
  • Zopim is also very easy to use, easy to set up, and easy to understand especially from an agent UI, providing a great opportunity to increase agent efficiency and usefulness

Cons

Birdeye

  • It would be nice for Birdeye to work with product reviews. Currently they're about business reviews only.
  • Is there a way to get BirdEye to sync with Amazon? Product reviews on Amazon would be huge.
  • The integrations are generally easy to add, but it would be nice to have a WordPress addon that makes it happen seamlessly.

Zendesk Chat

  • Zendesk/Zoopim is right around an entire Live visit programming .There isn't an approach to compel the client to answer certain inquiries preceding entering the talk. The talk transcripts some of the time take long to appear in the visit history .
  • Exhausting outline for the talk message box
  • No work area warnings
  • Warning sound just played once. Since we are not at the front counter constantly, it would make our work more troublesome since we expected to continue checking the site.
  • No portable application
  • In the event that we shut program window we would be promptly disconnected.

Birdeye is very self explanatory. It makes it very easy for our team to manage . We are able to use on our laptop along with our phones. My clients love that we an send the link though a text . It has been easy to navigate the platform weather is reviewing reviews to requesting help from help desk.

Support can always be better. I feel like there are shifts in leads at Birdeye all the time and it's hard to create a relationship with someone only to then be told you're being re-assigned. Would be nice to stick it through with someone for more time than a year or less. Not sure of the varying degrees of support and what's offered based on how much you spend with Birdeye, but that seems to be a heavy factor on the outside looking in.

Getting assistance and/or troubleshooting anything with Zendesk can be quite frustrating. In my years of experience with Zednesk, I have almost never found the answer to my question without going through multiple articles, ultimately getting frustrated and reaching out to our contact for more assistance. So for a consumer, the support is not as relieving as Zendesk Chat is to our customers in getting the questions answered by us.

Alternatives Considered

Birdeye

There is no comparison to Birdeye!! We have used 2 other reputation management companies in the past. We always had to ask every patient that came in to please take time to go online and give us a review. That was always met with a "look" from the patient and the staff felt uncomfortable asking. With BirdEye we don't have to do that any longer! They do the work for you, seamlessly and effectively, therefore, making our staff and patients happier.

Zendesk Chat

I prefer Zendesk Chat (formerly Zopim) over Talkdesk, as it provides customers with written proof of their conversation and customers are able to rate the conversation once it is done. Also, it's easier to find a previous conversation in Zendesk Chat (formerly Zopim) than in Talkdesk.

Return on Investment

Birdeye

  • All Positive ROI - It's simple
  • As a re-seller, it's all residual income, sell it once, train them, your done.
  • Even if we manage it as a re-seller, once you know the platform, you can pay a college student pennies to send out the campaigns or train clients. As an owner, I recommend it, my clients take my expert opinion, I'm done.

Zendesk Chat

  • First of all, I like the fact that this program is flexible and we can communicate with the customers or clients very smoothly.
  • Using Views, we can see how many unsolved tickets are in each group.
  • I really enjoy using Zendesk Support because it has been able to satisfy all the needs that I as a company have with both my clients and with my suppliers. As for the latter, I have been able to establish closer and more efficient communication with them.
